The concept of Mercury Mile is fascinating and awesome at the same time. Created by runners for runners, it gives you a better shopping experience when it comes to running gear. You go on the website, create a profile that describes your likes and dislikes , any and all preferences from styles to colors, how active you are, and more. Then Mercury Mile assigns a personal stylist to manage your account and they handpick out 5-6 pieces of running gear for you based upon your answers in the profile.
I’ll use my own signing up experience as an example. It is a very simple process and they even outline the whole procedure for you on their website.
OK, so you may have noticed the monetary amounts in the picture above. But that is also what is totally cool about Mercury Mile. All you need to do is tell them in your profile that you want to stay at a certain price point and you’re golden.
My box came with three different shirts and two different pairs of shorts as well as a thrown in gift of Sweat X Sport detergent. Then, I chose what to keep for my clothing collection and what to return to them. It’s that simple. And the excitement when you open your box to see what you’re stylist chooses for you is pretty cool. And it isn’t necessarily just shirts and shorts. Other BibRavePros have received sunglasses, sock, etc. in their boxes.
This is an extremely clever and useful service. Mercury Mile is something you should look into and, as an incentive for you to do so, use code “BibRave10” to save $10 off of your styling fee. Take a look. Check them out. I kept two of the shirts and one pair of the shorts and sent back the other two items. Another bonus: they include a prepaid envelope in your box to send back unwanted items.
Mercury Mile: created by runners for runners. You should take a look at their website and experience them for yourself.
